Starting Celebrations

As the year draws to a close, Christmas approaches rapidly, and for me another landmark to celebrate (commiserate?) This time is my 40th, and because everyone seems to be rather distracted on my actual birthday I bought forward a get-together.

Mel (who made a recent appearance on Stu’s Shed, making sausages at the Alternate Woodshow) has a cake making business, and turned up with a fantastic creation of chocolate mudcake (commissioned by my wife), with the Stu’s Shed logo printed onto (edible) rice-paper, and many tool cutouts as decorations. (If anyone wants to commission a cake from Mel, just let me know and I’ll put you in contact!)

My wife also sourced some perfect candles – shaped as tools of all things! (Think they know me pretty well!) – a saw, pliers, stillson, and hammer.

The Perfect Cake!

  3. Many Happy Returns Stuart, a fantastic looking cake, though it looks like you will have to get used to the little heartbreaker stealing the show!

    Regards Larry

  5. Happy Birthday old timer 🙂

  6. Thanks all! That cake was massive, we are still working our way through it – a large lump still in the fridge, and another in the freezer!

    And that’s enough of the “Old Timer” references too thank you 🙂

  7. Happy Birthday – I’ve a few on you yet (hopefully will for a long time, if you know what I mean : ) and my youngest is a bit older than yours – but aren’t they what make life worth living? Seeing the next generation coming along?
